Rose turned her back on the man she loves after he assisted the Englisch during World War II—only to discover she’s an Englischer herself. Born in the midst of the hardships of The Great Depression, Rose grew up in Berlin, Ohio, in the arms of a loving Amish family. But she is overwhelmed by self-doubt when she learns that she was born Englisch and abandoned when her family moved West in search of work.
Was she meant to be Amish or would she have been better off growing up with her own kind—Englischers? When the man she loves leaves her behind, Rose is certain he left for good. Yet Rose discovers sometimes our greatest gifts are the ones we fear.
I really enjoy Historical books, and the story of Rose and the man she loves is a really touching story of the Amish family lifestyle. When Rose learns that Jonathan, ( who she was planning on marrying )..volunteers to enlist in the Military during World War II, it really upsets her. Her Amish Faith does not believe in people fighting, so she is torn between her strong feelings for Jonathan and her Faith. He returns to their home town and tries to re-adjust to his lifestyle and wants to see Rose again.
When Rose learns some things about herself, she starts to question her beliefs in the Amish community. This is a story about love, family and family ties ( and how those ties are strong, no matter how the family was created )
If you love Amish stories, Historical stories or Christian fiction stories, this is the book for you!
